The critics agree: Life After Beth is otherworldly!
Jeannette Catsoulis of The New York Times writes, “Written and directed by Jeff Baena, this first feature feels … Seasoned … and … whip-smart.”
New York Observer‘s Matthew Kassel raves, “It’s a genuine stab at romantic comedy that … strides.”
The Playlist’s Cory Everett compares Life After Beth to the “brilliant” Shaun of the Dead.
In the opening salvo of her review, Sheri Linden of The Los Angeles Times gushes: “Breaking up is hard to do, especially when your girlfriend has gone to the trouble of coming back from the dead. That’s the jokey zom-com premise that … animates Life After Beth, the directing debut of I Heart Huckabees co-writer Jeff Baena. Stars Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan are game, as is the lineup of … supporting actors … The mayhem-in-suburbia conceit generating laughs as it stomps along.”
Examiner.com’s Travis Hopson calls the movie a “funny … zombie comedy with … a lot of laughs.”
